I don't think Jason Roe ("Will Rogers simply jealous of Rogan," June 15) should get so disturbed about Will Rogers' comments over James Rogan. Rogers is an investigative reporter, who digs out the good and bad about political figures in the local news. I think he's impartial. Every candidate makes mistakes, and Rogers usually finds them and points them out in his column. Rogan may be all the good things Mr. Roe says he is, except a good congressman.

Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) have approached the $10-million mark in a close contest for the chance to represent the area in Congress. Known for his role as a House manager in the impeachment trial of President Clinton, Rogan has been fighting hard to hold on to the 27th District seat. He has raised more than $6.1 million, according to reports filed this week with the Federal Election Commission.

Laura Winter PHILADELPHIA -- For Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank), the Republican National Convention was a blast. The unofficial king of congressional fund-raising, Rogan expected to collect more than just a few of his treasured political posters and buttons before leaving Philadelphia. His campaign manager, Jason Roe, expected Philadelphia 2000 to give the representative a financial boost, raising the campaign coffers by at least $55,000. "When candidates in close races have to make a decision about whether or not to come to the convention, if they decide to come to their convention, the experience must add up to a net benefit," said Jim Wilkinson, the National Republican Congressional Committee communications director.

Paul Clinton and Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- As the 27th Congressional District race gains steam, incumbent James Rogan (R-Burbank) appears to be cooling off, according to polling by the two camps. By his own estimates, Rogan maintains a slim lead over challenger Adam Schiff (D-Burbank). In a recent poll, Rogan had a three-point edge over Schiff, leading the Democratic state senator 42% to 39% in the hotly contested race. Rogan campaign manager Jason Roe acknowledged that with a 4% margain of error the poll could tip either way. "We could be up by seven or down by one," Roe said.

Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- What went around during the primary is coming around for the general election in the Rogan-Schiff congressional race. It was state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) who accused U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank) of ducking debates before the March 7 primary. Now, the Rogan camp claims Schiff is doing the same thing. A press release sent out by the Rogan Campaign Committee Thursday claims Schiff has declined two local invitations to debate the congressman because he is scared to face his opponent.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The opinion of a group that isn't taking sides on the Rogan-Schiff race is getting a lot of attention from both candidate's campaigns. The San Marino Police Officers' Assn. Wednesday evening withdrew its endorsement of state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) for the 27th Congressional District race after campaign officials for his opponent, U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank), questioned the group's support.

Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- The League of Women Voters decided to give Rep. James Rogan (R-Burbank) a few more days to commit to a debate with his opponent in the 27th Congressional District race, but campaign officials said he probably won't be accepting the invitation. Failing a response from Rogan to a recently sent letter, the League had canceled plans to host a debate Sept. 22 between the incumbent congressman and state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank)

Rogan and Schiff together at last A tip of the hat is due Rep. Jim Rogan (R-Burbank) and state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) for getting past their scheduling difficulties and philosophical differences and agreeing to debate the issues face to face. Much has been said and written -- including a critical editorial in this paper -- about the failure of the two candidates in this high-profile and tightly contested race to agree to be in the same place at the same time.

Every year at this time, I give readers a case of the Willys. I don't mean the feeling that comes from knowing my annual holiday poem is imminent. These are the Willy Awards, the most anticipated awards of the year. OK, maybe they're the awards you forget about until they're here. But they're here -- and you can't stop them.

More than a few readers, supporters and critics alike, read a recent letter to the editor from Jason Roe, manager of former congressman Jim Rogan's reelection campaign, then asked me some version of "What the heck brought THAT on?" Actually, there is a story behind Roe's diatribe. If you didn't see the letter, published Wednesday, Roe absolved me of partisanship, but announced that my reports about his boss have been motivated by jealousy. Roe enumerated what he believes are highlights of Rogan's life, compared them to my pathetic resume and what he thinks are my unrealized ambitions, and deemed me a "loser" driven mad by envy.

Jason C. Roe With Jim Rogan now out of elective office, spending time with his wife and twin daughters 3,000 miles away and about to join President Bush's administration, Will Rogers must be going through depression. I once naively thought his ranting hatred for Jim Rogan was due to political differences. Now I see it for what it is -- envy. Here was Rogan by age 40: L.A. County gang murder prosecutor; named one of the most effective DA's in California; youngest state court judge in California; elected presiding judge of the court; member of the state legislature; named No. 1 in integrity and effectiveness as Glendale's assemblyman; elected majority leader of the Assembly in his freshman term; member of Congress; prosecuted the first impeachment of a president in 130 years.

But when the La Canada Board of Education member recently opened up her home to help out one of the candidates in the 27th Congressional District race, it was state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) who walked in. "I don't think it's strange," she said. "Sometimes, it's very difficult, as someone involved in education, to vote for Republican candidates."
